    Russia's Worst Air Accident: A321 Crashes in Sinai (273)
    0 33

    Egypt's Prosecutor General Nabil Sadek is ready to hand over whatever information he has on last year’s crash of Russia’s passenger jet over Sinai to Moscow, the Russian prosecution said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Egypt has been in charge of an inquiry into the suspected downing of the A321 plane, which came down while en route to St. Petersburg from Sharm El-Sheikh. All 224 people aboard died.

    "The prosecutor general of the Arab Republic of Egypt spoke of his readiness to provide the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office and other concerned agencies with information on the investigation into the catastrophe involving the A321 plane in October 2015," the Office’s spokesman, Alexander Kurennoi, said.

    Russian and Egyptian chief prosecutors met in Moscow earlier today to sign a memorandum of cooperation. "The sides also discussed various issues related to cooperation in the legal sphere and in fight against international crime," Kurennoi added.

    Russia suspended charter flights to Egypt’s Read Sea resort of Sharm El-Sheikh after Islamist militants claimed they had bombed the passenger jet. Russia's Investigative Committee classified the plane crash as a terrorist attack.
